Triangle Race Series

When we made our 2018 goals last year, Kavi, Anika and I all had some running-related goals. I don’t remember offhand exactly what each of our goals were, but I think we all wanted to run more races, because well, races are fun! I somehow stumbled on the Triangle Race Series. It’s a series of a couple dozen races throughout the year around the Triangle, so we signed up for a few. They keep standings based on participation and placement. You get 5 points for running a race, and more if you place in your age/gender division. We ran about 4 or 5 of the races. I hadn’t really thought about the series at all recently since I injured my right Achilles in July and haven’t run at all since then. Getting old really is a bummer. Anyways, I checked the website today and they have posted the final 2018 results. I got 6th place in my “not-quite-old-fogey” division! Not bad, huh? Yeah, I know… it’s mostly a participation award, but still, I’m proud. But wait! That’s not even the best part. I’m even more proud of Kavi and Anika. They are both in the 0-19 age group, so get to compete against teenagers. Kavi got 3rd place in the male 0-19 division, and Anika got 1st place in the female 0-19 division!
